Shear Strength Prediction of

Deep CFFT Beams

by I. Ahmad, Z. Zhu, A. Mirmiran, and A. Fam

Synopsis: Synopsis: Synopsis: Synopsis: Synopsis: Despite significant theoretical advances in the use of concrete-filled fiber

reinforced polymer (FRP) tubes (CFFT), research on their shear behavior has been few

and limited. Current method of shear analysis of CFFT beams relies on Bernoulli beam

theory, which utilizes the basic assumption of linear strain distribution across the

depth. Most recently, the use of modified compression field theory was suggested to

improve the shear analysis of CFFT beams. The approach, however, is not applicable to

the disturbed or D-regions of a beam, such as those in a deep CFFT beam. Therefore,

this study adopted the strut-and-tie model to predict the shear strength of deep CFFT

beams. The model is validated against test results for a CFFT beam with a shear-span-

to-depth ratio of 1. A parametric study is then carried out to assess the shear criticality

of CFFT beams. The study showed that shear failure would only be critical for beams

with shear span less than their depth. High strength concrete was also found to

improve capacity of CFFT beams. However, a judicious selection of concrete strength

and fiber architecture with different proportions of shear and flexural capacities of the

tube could help optimize the use of materials.

INTRODUCTION

Use of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites has recently gained wide

acceptance as an economical technique for strengthening and rehabilitation of existing

concrete structures. Thriving incorporation of FRP in retrofit measures has led to the

development of an innovative hybrid construction concept and system (Mirmiran and

Shahawy 1995) that utilizes FRP tube and concrete as the two basic materials for member

design. Basic role of FRP tube in this system is to replace steel, while concrete serves the

same purpose as that in conventional reinforced concrete structures. In addition, FRP tube

renders itself as permanent formwork, protective jacket, confinement, shear and flexural

reinforcement, whereas concrete provides the compressive strength for the member and

stability for the tube against lateral buckling. The composite system thus formed is

commonly referred to as concrete-filled FRP tubes (CFFT), and is found a viable

alternative to reinforced or prestressed concrete for use as columns, piles and beams

(Karbhari et al. 2000, Mirmiran 2003, Mirmiran and Shahawy 2003).

In the last decade, considerable research effort has been directed towards

characterizing the CFFT system under axial compression (Samaan et al. 1998, Fam and

Rizkalla 2001), flexural and axial-flexural loading (Mirmiran et al. 2000, Davol et al.

2001, Fam and Rizkalla 2002), simulated seismic loading (Shao et al. 2005, Zhu 2004),

as well as long-term sustained loading (Naguib and Mirmiran 2001 and 2002). Superior

performances, comparable to reinforced and prestressed concrete, have been documented

FRPRCS-7 1087

for CFFT members under static and pseudo-static loading. In the modeling arena,

significant work has been carried out to better understand the behavior of the CFFT

system, and subsequently establish necessary design guidelines for practical

implementation. However, a detailed review of literature indicates that response under

short-term static shear loading has received little or no attention (Burgueno and Bhide

2004). It is evident that in real applications the CFFT system will be subjected to shear

forces in addition to other types of loading. Therefore, the increasing use of CFFT system

in infrastructure will depend on better understanding of the shear resistance of CFFT,

which in turn depends on the development of proper analytical tools that address

responses under all primary load demands including shear.

A study was undertaken to address the shear behavior and strength predication

of CFFT beams. The study consisted of two phases namely; experimental and analytical.

This paper reports on the analytical modeling. The model aims at predicting the capacity

of deep CFFT beams based on the well known strut-and-tie approach. The experimental

phase has been reported elsewhere (Ahmad 2004). However, a brief summary of shear

tests is included herein to provide instant reference to the reader.

SUMMARY OF TEST PROGRAM

A total of 10 CFFT beams were tested as a part of the experimental program.

The test program was developed in conjunction with two previous research projects by

Mirmiran et al. (2000) and Fam and Rizkalla (2002) mainly to cover a wide range of

a/D

o

, where a is the shear span and D

o

is the outside diameter of the tube. Mirmiran et al.

(2000) conducted flexure tests on short beams, using two different tubes of type I and II,

as shown in Table 1. Beams S-3 and S-6 had a/D

o

ratios of 1.93 and 2.04 respectively.

Similar GFRP tubes were used to fabricate the companion deep CFFT beams. Fam and

Rizkalla (2002) investigated flexural behavior of slender CFFT beams S-7 and S-8 with

types III and IV tubes respectively and a/D

o

ratios in excess of 6. In fact, the deep beams

S-7 and S-9 were cast as a part of the experimental program of Fam and Rizkalla (2002).

Some of the specimens for this project were cut from the same long span beams.

Irrespective of the tube types and a/D

o

ratios, all beams tested previously had failed in

flexure including the lowest a/D

o

ratio of 1.92. Hence, the a/D

o

ratio of 1 was selected

and companion deep beams were tested to identify the shear criticality and failure modes

of beams made with types I-IV tubes. Parameters studied included effect of fiber

architecture, a/D

o

ratio, reinforcement index, and diameter-to-thickness ratio of the tube.

Figure 1 depicts a typical view of the test setup. Table 2 shows the details of the tested

beams. Test results enhanced the data base of CFFT beams to the lowest practical value

of a/D

o

ratio of 1. Test results also enlightened the fact that shear may not be a critical

issue for CFFT beams when compared with their RC counterparts for a/D

o

ratios as low

as 1.

STRUT-AND-TIE MODEL FOR DEEP CFFT BEAMS

Although significant modeling efforts have been reported on the axial and

flexural behavior of CFFT members, none is directly applicable to deep CFFT beams.

Bhide (2002) and Burgueno and Bhide (2004) have recently augmented the modified

compression field theory (MCFT) with the classical lamination theory (CLT) to model

shear response of CFFT beams. The approach is based on a sectional layered analysis

with an iterative algorithm to achieve equilibrium and compatibility conditions for the

composite system, including the cracked behavior of the FRP-confined concrete and the

first-ply-failure criterion for the FRP tube. The model assumes linear strain distribution

across the depth, and resolves the shear stress distribution from the first order mechanics.

However, it is important to note that the model is applicable only to the so-called B-

region, where Bernoulli’s beam theory applies. In the disturbed or D-region, such as

CFFT beams with a/D

o

ratio of 1, inherent assumptions in the model do not apply, since

the behavior is dominated by the arching action rather than the beam bending action.

Hence, the model tends to provide lower bound strengths for short and deep CFFT

beams.

Previous attempts at estimating shear capacity of CFFT beams also include

modifications by Seible et al. (1996) of the UCSD shear strength model developed at the

University of California, San Diego by Priestley et al. (1993) for RC members. In their

model, shear strength V

n

consists of two components, similar to the shear equation of the

ACI 318-02

(2002), as given by

j c n

V V V + = (1)

where V

c

is concrete’s contribution, which is based on ductility of the member, as

expressed by

g c c

f V Α γ = 8 . 0

'

(2)

where γ accounts for the reduced shear resisting mechanism of concrete with the higher

ductility, and ranges between 0.1 and 0.29, and A

g

is the gross area of concrete section.

The truss component V

j

was developed for a 45

o

angle between the compression diagonal

and the axis of the member, taking into account the effect of multiple angle plies, as

given by

(3)

where n

w

is the total number of winding angles, D

o

is the outer diameter of the tube, t

j

is

the lamina thickness for each winding angle, and f

45

o

±θi

is the ultimate tensile strength at

the winding angle θ

i

. Since the equation adopts 45

o

crack angle, it implies that

compressive stress trajectories are uniform, and thereby assumes the entire length of the

member as a B-region. However, the actual internal flow of forces in a disturbed or D-

region could be significantly different. It is therefore necessary to use a procedure that

more closely represents the actual flow of forces.

Strut-and-tie truss model or the load path method has been shown to closely

model internal force flow in a D-region of a deep RC beam(Schlaich et al. 1987).

Furthermore, the empirical Equation (2) or the comparable ACI equation may

underestimate the shear contribution of concrete, V

c

in deep beams by as much as 2-3

times. Also, Equation (3) does not take into account the interaction between the lamina

layers and the principal stress components. Therefore, the predicted V

j

could be higher

than what an angle ply laminate can actually resist.

According to St. Venant’s principle

(Schlaich et al. 1987), D-regions are

generally located within a length equal to the beam depth D

o

from the support and the

load point. For a deep CFFT beam with a/D

o

of 1, the entire beam can be regarded as

highly disturbed with overlapping D-regions and non-linear strain distribution. As shown

in Figure 2, a rigorous strut and tie model was developed in lieu of a simple truss. The

model comprises of multiple struts and a connecting tie.

Tests data

(Rogowsky and Macgregor 1986) have shown that shear strength of a

deep RC beam increases with lower shear-span-to-depth ratio because of the direct

compression strut between the load and the support. Subsequently, the slope of the major

compression diagonal strut is an important parameter, and is better defined by the a/D

o

ratio. Following a similar format of the ACI shear equation, the shear force in a deep

CFFT beam is proposed to consist of two components of V

c

and V

j

, where the former

accounts for the direct shear transfer in the major compression strut between the load and

the support, and the latter stems from truss mechanism of the compression fan like struts

of concrete and FRP. These struts at the load and reaction points provide stability to the

tube under lateral buckling. Figures 3 and 4 show the details of internal force flow of the

truss model. The proposed truss model is highly indeterminate in nature. Geometry of the

compressive struts is established by keeping the strut angles between 25

o

and 65

o

.

Number of the struts varies depending on the length of the shear span. Two or three

iterations may be required before the geometry of the truss is finalized. The following

assumptions are made for the analysis:

1) Failure of the tube takes place at 45

o

angle, which is on the plane joining the

load and the support for a beam with a/D

o

ratio of 1. This is confirmed by test

observations that the principal tensile strain at mid-depth coincides with strain

reading at 45

o

(see Ahmad 2004).

2) Effective length of the tube for resisting shear is the length between the

compression fan like struts that contribute V

j

to the total shear force (see Figure

2).

3) Vertical component of FRP diagonal shear is equally distributed to the nodes of

the truss that consists of compression fan like struts and the tube. This

assumption is similar to the yielding of all stirrups in an RC deep beam.

4) Perfect bond and full composite action are assumed between concrete and FRP

tube, so that there will be no slippage. End plate of the tension tie simulates the

1090 Ahmad et al.

embedment of FRP tube in adjacent members, which is the case in structural

applications.

Figure 4 illustrates the force equilibrium of the truss system and the nodes. It is

assumed that the horizontal force in concrete at the support node is fully transferred to the

tube by mechanical friction. For partial composite action, the strut force induced in

concrete depends on the friction force imparted by the interface. Once the bond strength

is estimated, concrete strut force can be calculated by force transformation. Irrespective

of the composite action, support reaction will significantly enhance the frictional

resistance by bearing.

Several reasonable assumptions were made to allow for sizing of the

compressive struts and tension tie, and determining their stresses. Flexural analysis of

CFFT beam suggests that that the neutral axis is located within a region of 0.2∼0.4D

o

.

Depth of the C-C-C node that is subjected to compressive force was therefore assumed to

be 0.3D

o

. Unlike an RC beam, reinforcement in CFFT beams is distributed throughout

the depth. Observation of failure modes of deep CFFT beams indicates that cracks

propagated up to mid-depth of the member at failure. Therefore, the bottom half of the

tube was considered effective in resisting tension at mid-span. Tensile and compressive

stress distributions are assumed linear above and below the CCC node. An equivalent

rectangular stress block is assumed for concrete compressive stress at mid-span.

Equilibrium of forces can then be written as

f fh h

T C C = + (4)

where T

f

is the tensile force in the bottom half of FRP tube, C

h

is the horizontal

component of compressive strut in concrete, and C

fh

is the induced compressive force in

the FRP tube due to compression fan like struts radiating from the load point. Based on

the strut and tie model, three types of failure mode could be identified, as follows: (a)

shear failure (rupture of the FRP tube under diagonal tension, or crushing of any

compression strut, or combined failure of FRP and any compression strut), (b) flexural

failure (rupture of tension tie at the bottom in mid-span) or (c) bearing failure at the C-C-

C node (load point) or C-C-T node (reaction point) under excessive bearing stresses. The

truss element that has the weakest capacity in the induced loading direction will govern

the overall failure mode of the beam. From the free body diagram, failure load is the

smaller of the shear and flexural resistance, as given by

MODEL VALIDATION

For brevity, typical verification of the above model is discussed here for beam

S-9. In a typical RC beam, about 25%-40% of the shear force is carried by stirrups to

ensure ductile mode of failure (Macgregor 1997). However, in majority of CFFT beams

the effective amount of shear reinforcement is much greater than RC beams due to the

continuous form of shear reinforcement over the shear span. Therefore, it may be

reasonable to start with a value of 50% of the total shear transferred through truss

mechanism. Tables 3 and 4 show the lamina thickness and properties of the GFRP tube

used to fabricate beam S-9. Laminate analysis was performed to obtain the strength of the

laminate, f

fu

perpendicular to the failure plane. Progressive laminate failure analysis

(Daniel and Ishai 1994) was carried out with Tsai-Wu failure criteria (Daniel and Ishai

1994) for laminate, and strength was found to be 16.82 ksi (116 MPa) for tube type IV.

Failure plane was assumed at 45

o

angle, as confirmed by the tests. After finalizing the

1092 Ahmad et al.

truss geometry, ultimate load P

u

was found to be 178 kips (792 kN) and 202 kips (898.5

kN) to fail the beam S-9 in flexure and shear, respectively. This indicates that flexure

governs the mode of failure, as confirmed by the tests. The predicted failure load also

agrees favorably with the experimental load of 190 kips (845 kN). The analysis showed

that shear failure, if critical, would occur by crushing of the struts BH and AB (see Figure

3) rather than diagonal tension failure of the tube. Stresses in nodes C-C-C and C-C-T

were both below the respective limiting stresses.

PARAMETRIC STUDIES ON SHEAR CRITICALITY

The above strut-and-tie model was used to evaluate the shear criticality of CFFT

beams in a parametric study with the following four key factors: (a) fiber architecture, (b)

a/D

o

ratio, (c) D

o

/t

j

ratio, and (d) concrete strength,

'

c

f . For simplicity and practicality, all

material and geometric properties were selected to vary around those of beam S-9

described above in the model validation, unless otherwise noted.

Figure 6 shows the effect of fiber architecture on the ratio of the ultimate load P

u

for shear to its value under flexure. The ratio indicates shear criticality, if less than 1. The

fiber architecture is taken as a parameter, since it also reflects the effect of jacket

strength, f

j

in the axial and hoop directions and the fiber volume fraction of the laminate.

Three types of laminate architecture were used to study the effect of this factor on shear

criticality. Type of angle ply has the same lay-up, thickness, and materials as tube type IV

and can be regarded as the intermediate case. Types of axial and hoop represent two

extreme cases of 0

o

and 90

o

angles, respectively, or in other words, the least shear

capacity and the least flexural capacity, respectively. They both fail by splitting of the

tube parallel to the fiber direction. The figure clearly shows that axial fiber orientation,

such as in pultruded shapes, is vulnerable to horizontal shear failure. On the other hand,

angle plies are generally better in terms of shear capacity, and can be optimized for a

balanced design of flexure and shear.

Figure 7 depicts the effect of a/D

o

ratio on shear criticality of CFFT beams. As

the a/D

o

ratio approaches 0.5, the number of struts consolidates to only one major

diagonal strut. However, for a/D

o

of 0.75, the number of compression fan like struts

reduces to two. Due to lack of any experimental evidence, a 45

o

angle can be assumed for

tubes all cases, even though it is believed that it may be somewhat higher for the a/D

o

ratio of 0.75. Analysis reveals that for the a/D

o

ratio of 0.5, shear contribution of concrete

is about 100% of the total capacity due to the increase in major compression strut angle

and a decrease in the effective length of the tube. For higher values of a/D

o

ratio, if a

beam is sufficiently slender so that compression fan regions at the load and reaction

points do not overlap, no major compression strut will exist. Instead, a uniform

compression stress field will develop, which means that the method proposed by

Burgueno and Bhide (2004) would be appropriate. However, a truss model can also be

developed to predict the shear capacity of slender CFFT beam. It can be seen from the

figure that critical a/D

o

ratio is about 0.9 for this particular set of parameters.

FRPRCS-7 1093

Figures 8 and 9 show the effects of D

o

/t

j

ratio and concrete strength,

respectively, on shear criticality of CFFT beams. The D

o

/t

j

ratio is varied by changing the

thickness of lamina layers of tube type IV. Both parameters show similar trends as that

for the a/D

o

ratio. Shear tends to be critical for very low values of each parameter.

Flexural capacity is more sensitive to the D

o

/t

j

ratio, while shear capacity is more

sensitive to concrete strength.

A careful observation of the effect of concrete strength reveals important aspects

of shear design of CFFT beams. At lower levels of concrete strength, a brittle shear

failure may occur in one or more concrete struts, while at higher levels of concrete

strength, a combined failure of concrete struts and FRP tube may take place with some

ductility imparted from the FRP tube. Therefore, a higher concrete strength is generally

more desirable. A judicious selection of concrete strength and fiber architecture with

different proportions of shear and flexural capacities of the tube can help optimize the use

of materials.

SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS

Despite significant theoretical advances on the axial and flexural behavior of

concrete-filled fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) tubes (CFFT), research on their shear

behavior has been few and limited. Most recently, the use of modified compression field

theory was suggested to model shear response of CFFT beams. The approach, however,

is not applicable to the disturbed or D-regions of a beam, such as those in a deep CFFT

beam. Therefore, this study adopted the strut-and-tie model to predict the shear strength

of deep CFFT beams. The model was validated against test results for a CFFT beam with

a shear-span-to-depth ratio of 1. Predictions showed good agreement with test results. A

parametric study was then carried out to assess the shear criticality of CFFT beams. It

was concluded that shear failure would only be critical for beams with shear span less

than their depth. High strength concrete was found to improve capacity of CFFT beams.

However, a judicious selection of concrete strength and fiber architecture with different

proportions of shear and flexural capacities of the tube could help optimize the use of

materials.
